Giuliani: "I never said there was no collusion between the campaign" and Russia

President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani claimed on CNN Wednesday night that he "never said there was no collusion between the [Trump] campaign" and Russia — and that he has only ever said that Trump himself never colluded. Giuliani later added, "If the collusion happened, it happened a long time ago."

The backdrop: CNN's Chris Cuomo was grilling Giuliani about the allegation that former campaign manager Paul Manafort shared polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Ukrainian political operative believed to have ties to Russian intelligence.
